The New England Patriots agreed to terms on a contract with receiver Kendrick Bourne, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Bourne is set to earn $22.5 million over three years.

He finished the 2020 season with 49 catches for 667 yards and two touchdowns on the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent his first four seasons after going undrafted out of Eastern Washington.

He is the second receiver to join the Patriots and the seventh player to sign with New England on Monday. Bourne and receiver Nelson Agholor will join the Patriots, along with tight end Jonnu Smith, defensive linemen Davon Godchaux, Carl Davis and Deatrich Wise and linebacker Matt Judon.

Bourne, a possession receiver at 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, is a nice compliment to Agholor, a speedy threat. The Patriots also added Smith, a tight end who seems poised to be one of their top pass-catching threats. Meyers was also excellent over the second half of the season from the slot. And if healthy, Edelman is always a threat.

Even after all these additions, the Patriots seem to lack a No. 1 receiver.
